Stallion Licensing and Stallion Sales
It is THE highlight of the year: The Hanoverian Stallion Licensing on October 22 and 23 in Verden, culminating in the Stallion Sales on October 24. The pre-selection for the event saw a record number of nominated stallion prospects. 110 stallions out of more than 500 presented youngsters, born in 2013, successfully accomplished the first selection stage. The collection will feature 74 dressage and 36 show jumping stallions. Everybody looking for a future stallion, a top-class competition horse or all those who love the Hanoverian breed should travel to Verden.
Hans-Heinrich Meyer zu Strohen, head of the licensing commission, was very satisfied with the collection: „This age-group is of outstanding quality and certainly a highlight in my career as commissioner of the licensing committee.“ The huge number of stallions is particularly remarkable when considering that less foals were born the last years which certainly underlines the increased overall quality and exhibitors’ trust in the Verden Stallion Licensing.
This particularly applies for the exhibitors of show jumping stallions as the 2015 collection features the biggest number of show jumping stallions since the introduction of special groups 10 years ago. There will be a well-composed mixture of stallion prospects out of best Hanoverian foundation lines, descending from international sports stallions as well as approved jumper sires. Stallions such as Arko, Bonaparte N AA, Comme il faut, Copin van de Broy, For Pleasure and Kannan are well-known at international show jumping events. More well-known names like Cascadello, Contendro, Lord Fauntleroy, Lordanos, Messenger, Perigueux, Stakkato and Stolzenberg can also be found in the well-composed pedigrees.
The outstanding quality of movement resulted in the high number of 74 accepted dressage stallions. The composition of horses with impressive personality and availability of three awesome basic gaits is hard to top and will turn the licensing event in Verden into something special. Their pedigrees are as valuable with a widespread genetic background.
There are not only well-known stallion names like Belissimo M and representatives of the Donnerhall-, Florestan- and Lauries Crusador xx-dynasties, but also younger sires such as Lemony’s Nicket, Licosto, Quasar de Charry and Spörcken represented in this collection, just as interesting “guest stars” like Bon Bravour, Millenium, Vitalis, Jazz, Sezuan and Zack enriching the bloodline offer. This collection can certainly claim the title “Well worth seeing!”
